 Description of the problemI was driving down a highway around 8:45 am with a speed of 60 mph when all of a sudden i hear what sounds like an explosion inside my car. I became very startled. I then heard this roaring of wind and glass through some of the fabric which acts as barrier between me and sunroof/moonroof. There were no other vehicles on the road with me at the time, no animals, absolutely no one or nothing around to have caused this. It literally sounded like an explosion. I then find a safe place to pull over to inspect what happened, i then had to turn around to take my vehicle to nearest hyundai dealership. The service department stated they would inspect it but i would most likely have to pay out of pocket for this since 1) it had over 60,000 miles already, in which i have documented above 66,400 miles on my car which is approximate calculation due to not having my vehicle in front of me at this time due to it being inspected at dealership, i can't give a exact mileage at this time. 2) they haven't officially made this a recall yet, as to my next point this is not the first apparently that this has happened to. I did have glass fall into my vehicle and had the barrier not be there who knows what would have happened as i could have had glass cut me and even worse get in my eyes and cut my eyes or causing permanent damage. I strongly suggest someone look into this immediately as this is not acceptable or safe. I will not stand for hyundai blaming me or bullying me, and letting this continue happening. My car is with the dealership in alabama as i was on my way back home to tx, i will have to get my car bagged and taped so i can make it home to tx to take it to get fixed as i am having to miss work, arrange care for my kids, pets, until i am able to get home to tx.
